Guidelines for Supporting Sexuality and Gender Diverse Schools

Resources

Teachers and families may need support and strategies to address discrimination, harassment and bullying based on sexual orientation, intersex difference and gender diversity. Promoting and making available a range of written and electronic resources will assist in explaining the importance of challenging discrimination, harassment and bullying and supporting young LGBTI people.

Schools are encouraged to develop their own library of resources.  Suggested materials:
